Your water heater works its magic day in and day out, inconspicuously enhancing your life in ways you probably don't even think about...until the day it doesn't. When you need water heater repair, it becomes crystal clear how much we use - and love - hot water. There really isn't a convenient time for your electric or gas water heater to fail. What is important is to get it fixed right, ASAP.

Opportunity From Disaster

If you have a storage tank type water heater now, this might be an opportunity to switch to a more efficient tankless water heater. Gas tankless water heaters are considered to be more efficient than storage-tank type water heaters. While tankless models are usually more expensive to purchase initially, they pay for themselves in energy savings over time.

How Long Does a Repair Take?

A professional can have your water heater replaced in just one day. Whether you decide to replace a leaking or otherwise failed storage tank water heater with the same technology or with a tankless water heater, the work shouldn't take long once your contractor is on the job.

Some circumstances require additional pre-installation work. A rotten subfloor or framing that resulted from a leak that went unnoticed for a long time, for example. These situations are the exception, not the norm.

How Much Will it Cost?

Cost will depend on the replacement model of gas or electric water heater you choose, accessibility of the installation area, and existing infrastructure. For example, replacing a gas water heater in an easily-accessed and properly-sized and vented utility room with gas service already in place will cost less than replacing an electric water heater hidden in the crawlspace with that same gas water heater.

Any professional contractor worth hiring will be able to give you an estimate before work commences, and you should be sure to request one.

How do I Get Started?

You don't have to suffer without hot water for long. Now that you have some background and have an idea of the options and the questions to ask, call a qualified, professional heating, cooling, and plumbing contractor.

Once you find a friendly, knowledgable professional to do the work, you'll be able to rest easy knowing it will be many years before you have to tackle this problem again.

Why did I get into the Heating and Air Conditioning business?

I do not know if I had a choice, I had been working for my dad off and on since I was 16, just like he did when he was young man. A lot of my basic skills come from my father, fortunately not his business skills. Even though there is a lot of people... READ MORE-
